New Cornish language apps for beginners and learners
Go Cornish are thrilled to announce two new language resources, for children and adults wanting to learn Cornish.
Partnering with Android and Apple app providers Magi Ann and desktop platform Decks by Memrise, we have created a series of content rich courses with audio to help you learn Cornish on the go.
Winner of ‘Best Educational Project’ at the 2017 National Lottery Awards, Magi Ann is an app developed by Menter Iaith Flintshire to support children and parents/carers who are learning Welsh for the first time. Go Cornish have now worked with the Magi Ann team to provide a series of 12 simple stories to help your child learn Cornish. Read along, listen and tap on the words to hear the pronunciation and to see an English translation

“Congratulations to you ALL for the amazing work with the Magi Ann Kernewek app – I can’t believe that such a thing exists! It is so important in the history of the language, and it is so great with my son as well. Big FAT thank you!”
With Decks by Memrise, language learning is a game that anyone can pick up and play. It teaches you everyday words and phrases and reinforces them with fun quizzes. Get a real sense of progress every time you use it.
Go Cornish 1 is a basic introduction for beginners, which will support in the development of Cornish language skills to Kesva Grade 1 level.
